The Black Pirate
I remember this film with great affection. The entire film was made in two colour technicolor and was very impressive. I saw this in the early 1970s in the cinema so there is a print around

good film but no color
I saw this film in college in a film class and there were two scenes I know that were in the two strip color; one of those scenes was when the blck pirate was using his knife on the sails of the ship to get to the deck. No color, gentleman. Don't say so, if its not there. The film's rating is a four stars and the broken promise, no rating. Fix it, please,
